I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A BIKE, SINCE I AM NEW WITH FOUR STROKES. I RIDE A 99 YZ125 RIGHT NOW. ASIDE FROM ALL THE OBVIOUS THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT MORE NON OBVIOUS LIKE SOUNDS OF THE ENGINE. (IF POSSIBLE TO DESCRIBE)HOW LONG IS TO LONG FOR A PISTON OR WHAT IS A OK AMOUNT OF TIME PUT ON A PISTON. HOW THE COMPRESION SHOULD FEEL. I HAVE RIDEN A XR600 AND FELT THE COMPRESION ON IT AND IT IS TOUGH.(STARTING WITHOUT THE COMPRESION VALVE) IF U COULD HELP ME OUT ON THIS TYE OF INFO AND WHATEVER I MIGHT HAVE LEFT OUT I WOULD APRECIATE IT. :) THANKS :D
